Gibson Les Paul Florentine w/ Bigsby Limited Run Excellent! 2009. Condition is Used.
I've had several years of good use from this. I'm not the original owner, but it comes from a smoke-free home, and was taken care of very well. Plays like a dream, very straight neck. This is a limited edition, only 350 were made. I've only used it for shows, not practicing, so it's really had very limited use! $2100.00. Comes with original Gibson USA hardshell case and certificate from Gibson company. There are a couple very minor dings on the underside (as you're playing it). You can see them in one of the photos if you look closely enough. There's also minor pick scuff near where the pick guard would be if there was one. You can't really see it unless you're looking for it though. Everything on it is in perfect working order, plays and sounds excellent! Locking Grover tuners. Everything on the guitar is original except that the original owner had strap locks installed, which I've kept. Case is in excellent shape, inside and out. This is a rare guitar, and I'm only selling it because I need the money. I hope someone out there enjoys it as much as I did! I have 100% positive rating, so I am not here to steer anyone wrong.

The new 2009 Limited Run Series Les Paul Florentine with Bigsby Tailpiece uses Gibson's iconic Les Paul Standard as its base design, the Limited Run Series model combines the Les Paul's legendary characteristics with avant-garde features to keep it one step ahead of everything else. This new Les Paul Florentine with Bigsby Tailpiece guitar from Gibson USA combines the classic appointments of the Les Paul with a few of Gibson's most functional and practical attributes. First and foremost, the standard Les Paul cutaway gives way to the wider and deeper Florentine Cutaway. First used in 1902 on Gibson's O-style guitars, and normally found on such legendary models as the Byrdland, the ES-175 and the ES-295, the Florentine Cutaway design makes it easier for players to reach higher notes. The elegant, sharply pointed form also adds another dimension to the already classic look of the Les Paul.
Gibson's drive to recapture the magic of the original "Patent Applied For" humbucker pickups of the 1950s culminated with the introduction of the BurstBucker line in the early 1990s. Those BurstBuckers”Types 1, 2, and 3”successfully captured the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone with historically unmatched bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets. In 2002, Gibson followed up this innovative accomplishment with yet another breakthrough in pickup design, the BurstBucker Pro, designed specifically for the new Les Paul Standards. The BurstBucker Pro has an Alnico V magnet (instead of the Alnico II), which offers slightly higher output and allows preamps to be driven a little harder to achieve a more natural break-up. Like all BurstBuckers, the BurstBucker Pro has asymmetrical coils”true to the original PAFs”which supply a more open sound. The BurstBucker Pro Neck has slightly fewer windings than the original PAFs, while the BurstBucker Pro Bridge is slightly overwound for increased output. The BurstBucker Pro pickups are also wax potted to allow loud volume pressures with minimal feedback.
